Jones Lang LaSalle or JLL, a financial and professional services firm, just created the City Momentum Index which covers 131 major global cities and ranks their prospects for long-term success. Denver was one of 8 U.S. cities that made their Top 30 List of Future-Proof Cities as Denver came in #20. JLL says future-proofed cities have higher education infrastructures, innovation capability, better environmental quality, and more technology firm and more international patent applications.
This declaration makes Denver a big-time player for companies looking to relocate or open new large offices here. This means people will continue to relocate here for new jobs that our city is creating. More jobs=more people=more housing demand.
